PADI Women Saving the Ocean

Nic get's a nod!

Nic's featured in one of PADI's blog posts - you can read the full thing here.

The article also includes a spotlight on one of our friends from our time in Malaysia - the diving world really is a very small place!

Check out the hard work done by Rosie and Tioman Dive Centre too!

Here's what PADI said about her:

Nic Emery

Co-owner The Fifth Point Diving Centre

PADI Course Director Nic Emery left her dive instructor gig in tropical Malaysia to co-found a dive shop in Northumberland, England. Unique activities, eco-conscious diver training, and even the building itself make The Fifth Point Diving Centre one-of-a-kind.

The shop itself was built from reclaimed materials. Used pallets were upcycled into retail displays, and their training pool was once an ROV testing tank.

Every dive student at Fifth Point Diving earns their Project AWARE Specialty and Dive Against Debris certification as part of their basic scuba training. They also get their pick of a limited-edition Project AWARE certification card.

The Fifth Point Diving Centre is also the only dive shop (that we know of) putting lobsters back in the water instead of taking them out. Check out the video below:

Releasing the juvenille lobsters reared at the Northumberland Hatchery in Amble. How can a crustacean be soo cute?!

Learn more about The Fifth Point Diving Centre’s many environmental initiatives on their website. See pics of their shop and their adorable doggo by following @the_fifth_point on Instagram or Facebook.

As you may already know, she's mad keen about protecting the environment - particulary our oceans as she spends so much time in there! Get in touch if you're interested in any of our Conservation Activities or would like to take part in an environmental themed course led by our very own ocean advocate! She's even doing online versions right now because we can't get in the dive centre!
